It’s hard not to be lured into Radoslav Režný’s LomoHome. At first, it’s the saturated palette that he often uses in his photographs that baits the eyes. Scroll through his gallery and the clever way he composes his shots and captures the emotion of the people around him becomes more and more apparent. Get to know our latest LomoGuru from Slovakia in this brief interview.

I love this double exposure made with the Lomo LC-A+.

Do not be afraid to experiment.
